It’s a long video, if you are unable/unwilling to view all of it, I would highly recommend two sections:
- Torque vectoring & calibration - great for us technical geeks
- Silverback Jack - fun for everyone
It is my hope that Porsche would do the right thing and do a voluntary retrofit as opposed to waiting for the 1st Gen units to fail. They seem to fail during the most extreme conditions. Not good for your first EV. Again - Porsche if you are listening……
I dont charge to 100% often…cant recall the last time and what it said. Recently, hitting an 85% charge gets me to 245 miles on the guess-o-meter which is fairly accurate. So far, the spring has been the “jackpot” for me in terms of efficiency/range. Haven’t owned the car in the fall...
As the odometer recently hit 5 digits, I reflected on my experience thus far. I must say that it’s been very good. A few interior noises that I have yet to take it in for and a strange beep sometimes when the back hatch fully opens. The driving has been excellent blend of comfort and...
PPF not needed for most. A light duty interior cleaner and a soft cloth will keep things in new condition. Be careful of using a microfiber only (dry). This is a notorious in the detail community for causing fine scratches…which add up over time.
Sucks to have an early experience malfunction. The Taycan suspension is entirely derivative (mostly from the Panamera) so any issue here would not be novel to the average Porsche tech. You should be back in business without much head scratching.
Good luck 👍
This .2 version of the Taycan appears to have lost the battle between the designers that develop the beautiful lines of the car vs the engineers responsible for wind tunnel testing. It’s a step backward in terms of the Porsche ethos.
In my view, it’s generally not worth it if the intent is to recover the cost of the service later. It’s cheaper to do some touch-ups and a detail before selling it on.
I went to the extreme but I was willing to toss financial logic aside.
PPF essential for preventing typical rock chip damage.
Ceramic essential for chemical resistance and a great user experience in washing the car. (Btw, you can get similar results with spray on coatings)
If neither of these are important to you, then not essential.
